Leinster issue statement following "sectarian abuse" incident at Saturday's game

The incident took place at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday.

Leinster Rugby have issued a statement following reports of sectarian abuse taking place during Saturday's Champions Cup quarter-final 21-18 win over Ulster.

One fan was removed from the ground after allegedly shouting sectarian abuse, and the Irish Independent reports that a spokesperson for the Gardaí stated that there was no reports of the man being further arrested or charged.

Leinster issued the statement via their Twitter account:

"Leinster Rugby is aware of an isolated incident during yesterday’s game which was dealt with at the time by stewards and by Gardaí. There is no place in sport or in our society for any form of physical or verbal abuse.

"Thank you to the vast majority of the 51,700 who sang, roared, cheered and urged both teams on in what was a hugely special day for Irish rugby. Let that be the narrative. #KickItOut #ShoulderToShoulder #LEIvULS"
